Tiny Tots

Today it's Michelle's turn at being hostess at Ooh La La and she has chosen the theme of

Tiny Tots

For my card, I went back to one of my older Ooh La La CD's, (which is still available here), and made this sweet baby card.

The image and papers are from the Everyday Occasions CD, which truly contains a wealth of material and is one I turn to frequently as I know it won't disappoint!

So for my card, I used the fishing files from  the Ooh La La CD - Yesterday's Memories.

MAWTT - Sketch Challenge

Today's challenge over at MAWTT is to use a super sketch drawn by the lovely Carole from Design Team A, and I don't know about you, but I love sketch challenges - probably my favourite!

So here is my card, using a super male digi from Di's Digi's which I got in their $1 sale a few months back - what a bargain! (Just checked folks - Sale still on!) Papers are a right mix from my scrap box and the hearts were bought last year in Germany!

No Design Papers

Today I'm hosting the MAWTT challenge and for my theme I've chosen

No Design Papers

So it's up to you whether you go predominately white as I have done or whether you go all inky and creative!

My card uses a lovely digi from Digi Stamp Boutique and I created my border by cutting and pasting lines of flower heads into a square.  Colouring as always is done using Promarkers. Jx
